Two answers to the question I receive a few times per week:
Question: Can you show me a few more pictures?
Answer one: All listed stones are in hands of my assistant that ships them. Depends on the time of the year I am either 300 miles or 3,000 miles away from her. She takes pictures for certificates using camera in her cell phone under the kitchen light. If you are a producer of horror movies I can ask her to take a few pictures but please don’t show them to your children: poor kids will have a nervous breakdown.
Answer two: In 40+ years I didn’t see a single BOTH good and realistic picture of the stone if it was emerald. For the reason I don’t quite understand emerald is a stone that “doesn’t want to be photographed” (it doesn’t apply to any other stone). I take about 100 pictures of each stone, give them to my assistant to choose (I don’t have enough willpower to look at my results) and I am lucky if she doesn’t say: “I cannot use any picture from your nightmarish set.” Finally we found a photographer who agreed to take pictures for us (two before him tried and run away in horror) but his pictures when good are usually artistic-surrealistic interpretation. Nothing will replace seeing a stone in person and again - we refund immediately no questions asked.
When a stone is certified by GIA or AGL (not to mention Gubelin) I don’t provide our report. However, I still post specifications and often (not always) write description in Clarity – Picture – Stone format since neither lab even in its most comprehensive ($ 650+ GIA and AGL; $2,000+ Gubelin) report describes color and clarity. Obviously neither can describe picture we use.

Clarity. “Tiny something” (like very short thin piece of a hair or a few specks of dust). I didn’t spend time to determine what it looked exactly. Speck of dust, piece of a hair, tiny pinpoint or whatever else of such “magnitude” - it is nothing even for a “standard” (standard as a reference) 1 ct stone. Absolutely nothing for 2+ ct one. ABSOLUTELY nothing for a 2+ stone that has incredible crystal of the finest water transparency (transparency/diaphaneity is more important than inclusions when grading clarity of Type 3 stones) like this one. Actually the fact that the stone remained only minimally treated (a scarce commanding premium price) speaks for itself.
Picture. It is a picture of our photographer of course; work of the “Lord of reflections.” It seems he cannot hold on and using dozens strategically placed lights not to illuminate each and every facet. But this stone is much more than the perfect cold crystal as on the picture and brilliance when outstanding is not its most important property. Very good, but of course very far from the incredible real stone. Along with top clarity and incredible close to “absolute” transparency the most important properties of the the stone is dark (Medium Dark) but exceptionally bright top luxury color and tremendous gorgeous inner glow.
Stone. Actually already described. Incredible high-end stone!
A note about value. I don’t pay attention to born in narcotic hallucinations various industry price lists. Not even to price list of International Gem Society even though they are strictly educational institution and I personally know their president and a great gemologist Donald Clark. Well, their prices are real but only if the name of your store is Tiffany. Yes, if you see such stone in Tiffany, they will charge you somewhere between $40,000 - $65,000 per ct. Online James Allen store has more democratic prices (only I never saw stones of such magnitude there). About $35,000 per ct I guess. Not as good but still top - $28,000 per ct for over 2 ct stones. I refer only to prices of Gem World International – Bible of every jeweler, gem dealer and serious buyer. Their values and expertise were used in numerous legal cases around the world. The grade of this stone is on the top of Upper Fine - $5,500 per ct. For fast sale I sell such stones for $$3,2200-3,500 on gem shows and to private clients (still for $5,500 and up depends on the weight if it is top Intergem show). For Gemrock - $2,000 per ct. After all, we sell here and on eBay mostly for promotion/advertisement. I will post Gem World International price list for Zambian emeralds.
